I can't believe that summer is over and fall is here. The kid's are back at school and I don't know about your family but my family's allergies are beginning to flare up. It's time to bring out the Claritin again. Children's Claritin for my daughter of course. The wonderful people at Children's Claritin were nice enough to provide a Back-to-School Survival Kit for me and my fellow moms. I received five cute little Pass-Along Packs to give to other moms to help them get prepared for the new school year. Each pack included; Children's Claritin post-it notes, shopping list notepad, refrigerator magnet clip, pen and KaBOOM voting reminder cards. I received a packet of greeting cards too. Everyone really loved their kits.
I also wanted to share with all of you to please vote to help bring innovative play spaces to schools in need through the Children's Claritin & KaBOOM Imagination Playground program. Please take a moment and visit www.facebook.com/Claritin between now and October 31st to cast your vote for one of the twelve finalist schools.
The final thing I would like to share with you all is some back to school allergy tips provided to me by Children's Claritin.
1. Be sure to have Children's Claritin, the #1 pediatrician recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!
2. Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your child's daily routine. (We always give our daughter her vitamins daily)
3. Let there be light! Mold doesn't like sunlight, so try to keep your curtains open during the day. Should be easy during the summer months!
4. Did you know that most pillows trap allergens, dust mites and bacteria? Monitor the cleanliness of the pillow your child with allergies sleeps on and replace it if necessary. (We wash our pillows every so often)
5. Back to school season means lots of laundry for many moms. Be sure to remove laundry from the washing machine promptly. Allowing wet clothes to sit in the washer means mold can quickly grow there.
6. Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly, Dry, windy days can be particularly high in pollen.
7. Showering or bathing at the end of the day as opposed to the morning can be helpful in removing allergens from the body surfaces and hair.
8. Stay hydrated! Always send your child to school with a bottle of water. Drinking lots of clear fluids through the day can help get rid of toxins and flush out the body.
9. Peak pollen production typically occurs early in the morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.
